  • Please refer to the following link for an up to date list of countries included in the Green List

I am booked to travel to a destination included in the Green List, can I still go?

Government advice for countries included in the Green List is currently to avoid non essential travel, however you may still travel if wish to do so. We will be contacting all customers regardless of the destination they are travelling to and will discuss what options you have.

I am booked to travel to a destination that is not included in the Green List?

We will contact you and discuss your options as you would be travelling against government advice. Travel Insurance may not cover you, so it is essential that you check your travel insurance policy.

We have PADI dive centres in Greece, Turkey and Sardinia, and our fully qualified and registered instructors are English speaking. If you've never dived before and would like to give it a go, we offer a free try dive session at our Beach Resorts in Greece.

Water-skiing and Wakeboarding

Our water-skiing and wakeboarding in Greece proves very popular with adults and children alike.

We use the latest equipment with standard and wide combo skis for beginners and a good selection of mono skis, wakeboards, children's skis and kneeboards.


Kayaking is a great way to explore the local coastline as is perfect for those who want to get on the water, but might not be keen to sail and windsurf

All our resorts that offer watersports have kayaks available to take out free of charge. Our fully qualified instructors will help you carry your kayak to the water and even offer you a few tips and pointers if needed. There is no time limit and you can spend as long as you want out on the water.

Stand-up Paddleboarding

Stand-up Paddleboarding benefits athletes with a strong 'core' workout. SUP'ing is gaining in popularity as celebrities are sampling the sport, and cross-over athletes are training with SUP. Another reason for the rise in popularity of SUP boarding is that, unlike surfing it's very easy to learn. Within one hour you can become very comfortable in the water and on your board.
